Nice Youtube of some ideas for training in Aspire Park. No equipment required.
Under the title ‘Sponsorship System - Consequences and Solutions’ Qatar University organized a workshop in which the academics spoke about the conditions of expatriate workers in Qatar and presented suggestions regarding the transfer of sponsorship of the residents of the State. A number of people who were interested in the Labour Law and the law of sponsorship attended the programme. The speakers stressed that the sponsorship system made labourers subject to compulsory work and highlighted the need for the Labour Law to fit with the international standards, whereas the participants pointed out the existence of a gap between the Labour Law and Sponsorship Act.

Following "Project Doha" i wanted to make another timelapse video and this time have one of the nights of Qatar.
12,500 photos all shot on a Canon 7D, edited using Lightroom and LRtimelapse which is a really useful programme to reduce flicker and even out scenes.
The music is Outro, by M83
Hope that you enjoy it.

Qatar will spare no effort to empower women, says Sheikha Mayassa
Hotelier Middle East
We found a rental house through a QL ad from an agent. We called the agent and he transferred us to another person to see the house. We met the owner, rented the house, and the owner paid the agent fee. The guy who showed us the house tried to get us to also pay an agent fee, and even came to our house to intimidate us to collect. We had to threaten him to call the police and report him to his employer.
Warning, do not let these guys threaten you. Call the owner and tell him you are being harassed, and he will put a stop to them.
Six Olympic champions — Asafa Powell, Nesta Carter, Justin Gatlin, Veronica Campbell-Brown, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Allyson Felix — so far have been confirmed for Doha Diamond League athletics. Do you need more reasons to be at the Qatar Sports Club on the evening of May 11?
I've looked at some old threads about best/worst banks but didnt see anything current.
Does anyone know of a bank that doesn't charge annual fees on credit cards and/or debit cards? easy to deal with and the least amount of hidden charges?
I'm currently with CBQ and honestly I dont have too many complaints, they do have an annual fees for credit cards but not for debit cards. As of recent no banks except QIB and QIIB are allowed to offer islamic financing for cars. If this is correct, does anyone know if I can get a car loan without actually switching my account?
I've done the obvious (called the bank directly a couple of times) but unfortunately got different answers :) each time, hence the confusion.
